“Balance” is truly the key to life. Critical to my path towards self-realizaton is a process of “witness consciousness”, where I can observe myself and my emotions. When I am a little bit ”off”, I can hopefully identify those emotions that undermine my feelings of peace and “balance”.
What I feel in my body, the world will project back to me. When I feel grounded, things just seem to go smoothly. It is so very important to have “fun and joy” in life, as part of our balance.
When I feel that the child in me needs to play, I should always take the time to play. While at the beach yesterday, I looked out into the ocean and I saw something moving out in the water. What could it be?
I felt pure delight. I had never seen this before! And they continued on for at least 20 minutes. I felt pure joy. These two seals shared the wisdom of the importance of play.
Years ago, when feeling really happy, I would perform my “horsey dance”. I had a beautiful standard poodle, Harvey, who would get so excited during my dance that he would nip at and actually bite my bottom. We nicknamed him “butt-biter”. It seems so silly, but it was so important. More recently, as I have been going through a very difficult time in my life, my horsey dance has not been as spontaneous or frequent. But today, I feel the need to dance, feeling the ”pure joy of being alive” and being grateful for all that I have. And all that I am.
Strive to find your inner ”silly child”. It is so important to be able to laugh with and at ourselves.
